The financial assistance provided amounted to $75,000 for Cote d'Ivoire and $50,000 for each of the other countries, according to an AU press release.
An official ceremony was organized at the Headquarters of the African Union to hand over the cheques. The ceremony was attended by the heads of the diplomatic missions of the countries concerned or their representatives.
The handing over of the cheques is a follow-up of the visit paid to the region by a delegation of the AU Commission on Refugees to assess the humanitarian impact of the crisis in Côte d'Ivoire. Following the visit, the interim chairperson had decided to provide humanitarian assistance to all those affected.
